HOME DISTURBANCE ! !

00000003

 

I posted about this HERE.

 

It happened again last night…. actually this morning around 12 AM to 2 AM.

 

To summarize what happened in July, 2017….. I broke up  with my boyfriend, then he demanded that I return ” his ” dog , or else, he’d sue me…..and he came over at 3 AM but he didn’t create a disturbance when we didn’t open the door.

 

But today, it was different.  So, okay, he said he wouldn’t get ” his ” dog back anymore. But then, 4 months ago, he started texting and calling me about us getting back together….. I’ve been saying NO very politely  but he didn’t stop…………… but last night on my  drive home, he called again. I was driving , and very tired,  darn it,  so I yelled on the phone   STOP CALLING ME AND GO AWAY ! !  I mean,  his texts and calls have already become a form of stalking and harassment !  When I got home, ( about 10 PM ) he texted  and threatened he’d come over to get ” his ” dog back . So, we turned off all the lights , then , around 12 , the doorbell started ringing  without let-up, and at the same time, texting  me ( I received 25 texts ) , and said he had called the police. ( I actually got a voicemail from the police ) . We also heard him  say , in a rather loud voice , ” I know you’re in there, Ren. Don’t make it hard on you and your family.  I JUST WANT MY DOG BACK ! ”

 

Meanwhile, we forgot  my cousin would come home at 1 AM ( from her part time job delivering Domino’s Pizza,  ^__^ ” ) . Then we heard her enter the house, heard voices,   and we were like, OMG, did she let him in ???? She was like, ” are you kidding ? ”   She then called her BF, and on the phone, she said , ” There’s a 6 ft. tall angry dude at our doorstep,  can you come over, please and   don’t come in, just park the car outside and stay in the car, call me,  and let us know what he’s doing. ”  Believe it or not, it was already 2: 15 AM when he finally left. The BF came , parked, and kept the headlights on…… just to let the ex know there’s a witness, just in case.

 

Where was Dad while this was happening ?  Dad is a heavy sleeper… so yeah, he was happily snoring in La la land, thank goodness.   Otherwise, there’d be a huge commotion between him and this guy.  Yikes.

 

Guys, a question…… should I be worried ?  I don’t think he owns a gun.

 

So, this is it…. Thanks for reading and peace !  (~.~)

Bye !  Wish me luck ! !

 

 

It’s backkkk ! !

00000003

I know, I know. I’m whining .  In my previous post, I did say ,” problem solved … WordPress , take care of me. ”  Well, folks, it’s back.

 

The only solution now is to get a new email address . WordPress’s Reader is very unreliable.  Sometimes I see new posts, ( just 2x these past 2 weeks ), sometimes I don’t.

 

My old email  server doesn’t or can’t accept new posts from blogs that I follow on WordPress.  I still get email notications of LIKES and FOLLOWS, though.

I’ve actually never used Reader to read new posts from bloggers.  It’s so cluttered.  But I had to, after this email debacle.  And then this happened, and have been happening for 2 weeks now.

I thought renewing my Premium would solve the problem.  I was a happy camper for a few hours, then it came back.  No Reader. ( the photo above was taken an hour ago )

 

I solved it temporarily by clicking on the avatars of the bloggers who LIKED my posts.  However, some of the bloggers’ avatars do not have links to their websites, like @Gardencity’s .  ( I like to read posts on gardening )

 

So, yeah, this is what I’m dealing now.

 

I’m going to sign up with gmail, as per the majority’s recommendation.

 

That’s all.   Bye and peace.

 

 

Breaking my silence, but not enough

Hello, there !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here.

 

I haven’t done any blog reading ….. well, maybe 10 blogs a day this week, and these last 2 days, none at all……, and Cassie, MBBBF,  can attest to this. I haven’t been feeling well these last few days that even my boss had to let me go home  ( bad timing,  there was no one to take my shift so my boss had to do my work ) .  My cough sounded terrible , , my eyes were watery, my joints hurt, and though I had a slight fever, my hands and feet were icy cold. Weird.   Last Wednesday, I was called for a jury duty. I went despite being sick, and hoped the judge wouldn’t select me. I  usually don’t get selected because of my father’s job.  He works with law enforcement, and no, he’s not a cop nor a warden, ^_^”.  We get asked about this stuff,  so, I was sure  the defendant’s attorneys would eliminate me, assuming wrongly  there was  going to be some bias against his client.  Sure enough, I was sent home, thank goodness.  This is not always the case though , because my sister was selected  to be a juror despite the personal info.  Why was she selected ?  Well,  99 % of the people who were asked by the judge  gave the wrong answer. My sister was the only one who got it right. Okay, so the judge asked each potential juror  whether the defendant present in this court  was guilty or not.  Everyone answered they didn’t know……. my sister was the only who said the defendant was innocent.  And folks, that’s how it should be… innocent until proven guilty .

 

Another thing……. US Attorney General  Jeff Sessions just scrapped  the commission established by the Department of Justice and  the National Institute of Science and Technology  to engage independent forensic experts to improve the reliability and authenticity of forensic evidences .  Sessions scrapped this… these “meddling  scientists “, he said.  He said he would instead just get an in-house adviser.  Folks, I have a college degree in Forensics Biology, specializing in DNA Analysis,  and even if I know that Forensics analysis  is the most reliable evidence by far,  this cannot be attained with garbage evidence .  ( contaminated , etc. ) We have to be sure that the person we are sending to the gallows is  truly guilty.  Now, don’t ask me if I’m pro- death penalty  or anti.

 

I haven’t made any political statements for quite a while.  I ‘m so overwhelmed by the almost daily  screw-ups coming from the White House….. oh,  pardon me, from Mar-a Lago…. that I ‘ve decided to zone everything out.  I mean, that guy spent 25 days of his first 100 days golfing on his   resorts and visiting his other properties. Meanwhile , taxpayers spend  $ 3 M each time he stays at Mar-aLago, not to mention the $$$$$$  the government spends to maintain his New York’s Trump Tower, because Melania lives there.  Add the $$$$$ we spend every time his sons go abroad on private business. (  Hey, first family is protected everywhere they go, right ? )

 

Of course, these are just small , shallow corruption issues.  What I should be more concerned about is the abolishment of  the Environmental  Protection Agency ( EPA ) , Department of  Education, the repeal/rejection of Affordable Health Care Act ,  defunding of all agencies that take care of the needs of  the people…. ( Meals on Wheels, PBS subsidies,  Sesame Street, the arts ).Meanwhile , that man  is so ready and eager to make tax cuts for the rich.

Fun Vacation in the Philippines, Part 5

My Random Thoughts, One More Time

Hi ! Renxkyoko Iglesias here !

So, okay, this post is about my vacation in the Philippines.  But, first, I’d like to write down a few things  swirling on my mind at the moment, and let’s see where this post  goes..

Firstly, the Republican Party’s scorch earth policy has been  pissing me off  from the time  this party invited Israel’s Natenyahu to speak before the US Congress without informing the White House. This was a total breach of protocol and disrespect for the US  Executive office.  But , what do we expect from these  people ?  They don’t even believe  Pres. Obama is an American. Then more than a week ago, 47 US Republican Senators sent a letter to the Ayallatolahs in Iran, telling them  the talks and on-going negotiations  between Iran and the US  ( and  5  others…. Russia, China, Great Britain,  Germany and France) are useless pieces of  documents, thereby scuttlling and undermining the integrity  of the US  negotiators..  Under Logan’s Law, that is treason.   They will burn the whole  country down to spite the Black man currently residing at the White House. It’s mind- blowing.

And, Netanyahu has won the election in Israel, and has  proclaimed to the world a state of Palestine  would  not happen under his watch.  Well, good luck on  that, Sir.

” Uhm, Ren, are you actually anti- Israel ? ”

Believe it or not, there’s Jewish blood flowing in my veins.  My great, great, great , great  grandparents were Spanish Jews, and though they later converted to Catholicism, this little info had been passed on from one generation to another, finally to my mother and her siblings, then to us.  ( lest we forget).  Another thing, my brother-in-law, my sister’s husband, is a Jew.  That’s the magical  asterisk  in my family’s already colorful history.

How colorful ?  Well,   a  great grandfather  was a rebel  who was  arrested and incarcerated in a dungeon at Fort Santiago, and later, his house was turned into a museum to honor him…… another  greatgrandad, a rebel, managed to escape to HongKong  before the American  colonists  came to arrest him, and no, he wasn’t a homeless  19 year old bum all the time he was on exile……. he was a student boarder at St. Joseph’s College and studied there for 4 years.  It still  exists, and surprisingly, it is considered the most elite boys school ,most revered  and best school  in  HongKong to this day.  ( According to Wiki )  How his father sent out the money  to HongKong was pretty interesting, but the American authorities  knew about it apparently. They, in fact, had arranged for him to return to the Philippines, and appointed  him Governor  of the province ( won’t mention the name of the province) for many, many years . It seems I’m bragging. Well, I guess  I am. They fought for independence, after all.  The other greatgranddad’s story was better , though. What happened to him was  in their history books.  That’s something to brag about. The other one? I don’t know.  Maybe he had fun in Hongkong. Still…. it was kind of  sad to be away from family for 4 years. I’ m  not diminishing what he had done for the cause. He was just lucky to have a family with the means to keep him out of the dungeons.   Oh, but he had a town named after him. :0  It went well for him, too..

So, okay, where was I ?

Going back to the question, am I anti- Israel ?  No freaking way. But, we do seek pathways to peace , whatever they are, wherever they maybe.  I believe , and the whole world, for that matter, believe  that statehood for Palestine , is one pathway.

And what do I think of these terrorists ?  It cannot be published. omgcursezasfdgytmdie !

The problem here is,  who am I to rant , proselytize, be holier than thou ?  The US is not  lily white , either. Racism  is  alive and kicking.  ”  Wrong ” skin color can get one killed.

I guess this post went nowhere…. as expected of  yours truly.  ^_^ ”   Fun vacation, my foot.  My thoughts just took off and went all over the place, except the place where they were supposed to go.

This  is all for now.  Fun vacation post next  time maybe ?

Thanks for reading , folks. PEACE !

Is All……. o_O”

Hello !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here.

This is my second post this month. I wish I could post more but.. oh well.

My father’s in the Philippines.  He left last week. It wasn’t a sudden trip, though. He had been planning this for months, but we were nevertheless  surprised  to see him packing Thursday night, and we were like, When are you leaving? … Tomorrow.  What ! ! ”  My sister goes to San Francisco twice a month to be with her boyfriend . (  He now works in Frisco ). She is supposed to go there this coming Saturday, and take Dad to the airport, but her BF called to tell her he bought tickets to a Friday night  game, (  baseball or football, I don;t know), so Dad just decided  to leave one week earlier. San Francisco is  a 2 hour drive from our house, and he doesn’t want Mom to go on long drives anymore.

So, anyway, I wrote  about a  beach  house we’re constructing in Boracay Island, Philippines, didn’t I ?  The plan was originally a duplex, one unit  for the family, and the other one for rent to tourists. Then it was changed to a 2 floor house , 6 bedrooms, 3 toilets/baths…. then 3 weeks ago, we learned that my aunt changed it again to 2 1/2 floors, 7 bedrooms, 5 t/b with a rooftop garden. What the heck ! !  Well, it is my aunt’s and my parents’ joint venture, but this is getting out of control.  My aunt assured us  all additional expenses would be on her.  Oh–kay …… still……..

Anyway, that’s the reason why dad ‘s in the Philippines now…… to check out what the heck’s going on with  with on – going construction….. and to ask the architect about the changes, although we learned it was due to the site’s topography. It’s hilly, so the architect changed the plan based on the layout of the land.  The architect assured  us the view would be spectacular…. though our property is not beachfront… it’s  a mere  5 to 10 minute walk to the beach, so that view from the hillside will be spectacular, indeed.

So, to my readers from the Philippines,  watch out for my ” promotional plugging”, ha ha.  Our  problem now is , this is not a simple vacation house anymore that we’ll  be renting out when not in use by the owner.  We’re figuring out how to run this……… now how do we classify this ? An inn?    Also, to my non- Filipino readers who want to go on tropical vacation, we’ll advertise this on VRBO.com * Vacation Rental By Owner ” . Hopefully, we’ll be ready by February , 2014.

Oh, by the way, I bought a published book by a fellow WordPress blogger.  Uhm, Mr. Conley ? I haven’t read it, but I promise to read it soon, and hopefully, write a review.

Hey, I’m not going to be political on this post, even though my mouth is itching to say something.  One thing though…. the total non-empathy and  non- compassion of the Teabagger Republicans  for the needy   are stunning.  And to think their base constituents from Red states *  (Democrats’ are BLue states *  )are poorer than Blue states’.  ALL … I repeat, ALL,  Red states, except Texas , get more federal welfare than they give to the government. The rich Blue States, like New York, California, Massachusetts, Washington, Oregon, New Jersey, Maryland,  etc. heavily   subsidize these Red States.  Oh, the irony ! ! !  Hey,  teabaggers !. See that poor,  homeless- hippy  looking  beggar  listening in to your tirades againts those lazy poor and the sick – if – you- can ‘t afford it- just die folks  ? He  could be Jesus -come- down – to- earth. And His eyes are glazing over as He listens to people like you. The shamelessness and meanness are breathtaking.

So, I went political.  Again.  Couldn’t help it. * walks off, mumbling. *

* turns around *

My Paris tour next post….. Louvre, specifically.  And countdown to our Asian tour in June, 2014….. 7 1/2 months.  Good day and  Peace.
